Above the waterline some trees are broken down or poorly grown, leaving sticks and branches scattered and protruding out of the ground here. The other side of the water is large rocks which create a natural barrier to the ocean here. Poop bags are available here, and the garbage cans are emptied regularly.
The rules of this park dictate it is not an off-leash park, nor is it a dedicated dog park, so you are required to keep your canine on a leash at all times. That being said, walking along the beach makes for a great way to wear out your canine while getting some exercise yourself and enjoying the water and gorgeous views.
As this park is not a dedicated dog park, there may be people here to use this area for other purposes, such as fishing. Fishing hooks and equipment could put your canine at risk of injury, so be sure to watch out for fisherman or fishing equipment around the park. This is also not a free beach.
To visit the Lighthouse Point Park with or without your canine, there is a $10 fee. This is a per use fee. With all this information in mind, other dog parks will cost you less, give your canine much more space, and allow your canine off leash. However, this park does have a beautiful view of the water and the lighthouse.
That being said, a dog-friendly beach is hard to find, and for canines that love the water, you may want to take the bad side of this park as it is hard to find anything similar. In addition, there are public restrooms and running water at this dog park for you and your canine.
